Critiquing Comics #160: ‘Shika-Machi Journals’ & ‘Garage Band’

by Hannah Means Shannon

The Critiquing Comics Podcast is back, from the same folks who bring us Deconstructing Comics, but this time focusing on the craft of making comics…

Shika-machi Journals and Garage Band

  • Garage Band, by Jason D and Celia Tian. The beautifully-drawn story of three …unlikeable teenagers.
